Mitzvah Project: Bracelets for Orphans
Tell us a little about your school.
We are a small school with under 25
girls, we feel like one big family.
How did you decide to take on this particular project for Lev
Our school has a Chesed program led by a few girls; I am
one of the heads. We try to do
activities every few months and came up with the idea, looked up the Lev LaLev
orphanage and knew it would be perfect! We hoped the activity would be fun for
the girls and meaningful at the same time, and it was!
What was the most meaningful part of doing this Mitzvah Project?
Seeing that all the girls really wanted to make a difference in another’s
life made us (the chesed heads) feel so amazing. Many of the girls took beads
home to make more.
Please share any details or fond memories of your Mitzvah Project.
The enthusiasm was just breathtaking. Almost every girl in our
school participated and some of the staff happily joined in as well!
Anything else you would like to share about your experience with
Lev LaLev or the Mitzvah Project?
We felt that the Lev LaLev was especially accommodating and very
pleasant to work with. Thank you for giving us this opportunity!

life a little sunnier. Do a mitzvah
